Phillips began her solo career playing with her band in London until she moved to L.A and recorded her first album "When The Rain Stops" with Ted Perlman, Grammy winning producer. The song "Secrets" was used onthe daytime soap, "Passions."
She recently recorded a song with legendary Hip-Hop artist DMC called "I'm Legit" on which the two collaborated as adopted people to bring awareness to sealed birth records in the U.S. The song descibes issues that adopted people go through emotionally during their search for their birth parents.
